7 Proven Variables That Make you RiseFIT

1. COURAGE

So many people want to get fit, however, they are afraid to go out and try something new and come up with excuses why they can’t.  If you haven’t tried it, you really don’t know if you can, and you may greatly be cheating yourself for not trying.  

 

2. THE WHY

The most important question you need to ask yourself is “why am I doing this?” You will create a  clear outcome of what you want to achieve and by what date. Those of us who achieve anything meaningful are always driven by their WHY.  The single biggest downfall for most people is not spending time on creating their “why”, and without a “why”,  we lack motivation and make up excuses to not workout.

 

3. MINDFULNESS

You're not there...yes, your body is there, but where is your focus?  Staying mindful of what you are doing goes beyond simply doing it to stay safe.  Being mindful enhances every aspect of your workout time.  Being fully engaged in what you are doing is not only a good idea, it’s essential to producing at the very least, “good” results.

 

4. INTENSITY

Now that you are mindful and fully engaged in what you are doing, you need to try harder.  It’s like anything else in life. In order to get new results you have to put in twice as much effort. Counting reps is key to intensity. If you could do 10 perfect squats in 1 minute, that’s awesome! In the next set, challenge yourself to  do 11 perfect squats in one minute. Even the slightest increase is gaining intensity.  If running faster is what you want, it’s going to require you to pick up your pace!

 

5. COMPETITION

It’s not about you trying to beat anyone else, it’s not even about you competing with yourself.  It is about you measuring what you are doing, and cheering yourself on to do more than you’ve ever done before.  I’ve seen so many people hurting themselves because they were trying to beat someone else.  Instead of listening to their own bodies they were focused on what someone else was doing. It’s just stupid.  Have courage to strive to do more than you’ve ever done before, be mindful of your body and do what is right for you. Use intensity to push yourself safely to do something you haven’t done before.  1 rep more than last week, 1 second faster, lift 1 more pound than last week.

 

6. COMPOUNDING

Now that you are doing more than last week,the results will begin to compound and you will begin to see measurable results. Keep consistent with this goal each week and you will really see results.  

 

7. CELEBRATING

Energy and enthusiasm are the variables that keep us wanting to do more, and we're more likely to keep doing what we truly enjoy.  Training hard, or working out hard needs to be celebrated. But let me be very clear - do not go out celebrating with pizza and beer! Rewarding yourself with food, especially food that is not in alignment with your goals is completely incongruent with working out. Perhaps give yourself points toward a massage or reward yourself with a special trip - any other way you want to celebrate your achievements and your effort goes hand in hand with the outcome you ultimately want.

WHY DO I TAKE MY TEACHING SO SERIOUSLY?

WHY DO I TAKE MY TEACHING SO SERIOUSLY?

Why do I  take my teaching so seriously?  Because people's lives are in my hands.  Because the misinformation spread in the media is harming people.  There is so much more people can do to live long, healthy, and high quality lives.

Through the years I’ve seen too many people die too young due to lifestyle choices. I’ve witnessed too many people who were given bad advice and who destroyed their bodies while living in pain, who resorted to pills to get through the day. I don’t judge and I don’t blame, I just hope to change attitudes.  I’ve had clients who were in constant pain, who couldn’t even lift themselves back up after being on the ground without assistance, who after changing their lifestyle and habits, got back to do what they never imagined doing like skiing in their 60’s and older. I’ve helped people with years of chronic back pain live pain free.  There is so much more people can do for themselves once they realize the power they have to  create harmony in their lives. Making changes and embracing a healthy lifestyle creates harmony. Harmony creates power.

The true reward for me is seeing how RiseFIT members improve their quality of lives in every aspect.  What is that worth to my members?  For most it is priceless.  To me, health is priceless. It’s not how many candles are on your cake, it’s how well you perform and live your life. I have done it for years, making people younger next year.  Yes, it does take time, consistency, the right attitude, and a huge effort. But if you just show up,  you too can feel stronger, younger, more energized, and live more fully next year.  What is that worth to you? 

Love yourself more, believe in yourself more, and follow a proven path to a stronger, younger, better version of you. You can travel and evolve at your own pace and as long as you follow the guidelines, you too will create a better way of living, and thrive at a whole new level.  This is why I do this. This is what excites me and gets me out of bed each morning when that 4am alarm goes off.  I believe in my clients. I  know what you are capable of. All you have to do is show up, apply yourself,  and follow the path.

Tell yourself: I can do this, I have what it takes!  I have the courage to overcome the fears I may have at the moment and the strength to crush the excuses that the weaker side of me has been using to keep me from growing.  Dare to step up, and know that you are surrounded by a supportive, nurturing community that is here to guide you, support you, lift you up, and get you to your goals.  Take that first step, and a year from now you will be beyond thankful for how far you have come, proud of all you have achieved, and feel empowered by your inner strength to overcome all that used to stand in your way.  You can do this, I know you, and deep inside you do too.  It’s time to be brave, it’s time to LOVE you at a whole new level and give yourself the gift of better health. Keep in mind one of my secrets - work from the inside out! The door is open, the opportunity you have been waiting for is right here, right now. Take the leap now and start your journey today.

The Secret To Reverse Aging

The Secret To Reverse Aging

If you knew how you can influence the aging process, would you be interested in staying vibrant longer?

RISE holds the secrets of building an enduring body, enhancing energy levels and feeling good.

The problem we all face is that we are aging. To most that means getting older, to {us} that means getting better, wiser, more alive.

Research shows about 80% of the aging process is in our hands, and only 20% is in our genes.

It starts with your mindset and that carries over into the actions you take - leading to the experience you create and have in the end.

The RiseFIT program, designed by Robert Jaroszuk, is based on all the research of aging and how to stay vibrant and strong - for life.

You will learn and practice how to avoid the aging misery that many people experience {the aches, low energy, feeling sick, complaining about aging, and becoming increasingly pessimistic about life.}

When you get into your late 20s, metabolism begins to slow. Later, muscle mass begins to drop, stamina goes down the hill, stiffness begins to set in, and outlook on health begins to fall. The rate and magnitude of those factors are greatly influenced by the choices of each individual. Some people run marathons in their 70s and 80s, some even ski!

RISE knows the scientific movements discovered that need to be done consistently to have the most vibrant fulfilling life - and this is what we focus on and do in class.

RiseFIT is designed to not only help our members get in the best shape of their lives - arguably the more important factor is to build a body that will last the longest and performs greatly everyday.

Most people go to the gym to get strong {and strength is great, you need to keep that up!} but having full mobility, great stability, fantastic stamina combined with strength is way better.

We are here to empower people to make the most of the 80% they are not aware of.

We don't have to age like our parents did. We focus on the fundamentals that drive renewal and embrace being alive!

Take Time To Sharpen Your Ax

Take Time To Sharpen Your Ax

"I am so super crazy busy!"  Everyone is, it’s not about how busy you are, it’s about what you make a priority in life.

Truth is you can only burn the candle on both ends for so long.  Most people go out there and are so so so crazy busy chopping wood with a dull ax and they don’t have the time to sharpen the ax because they need to keep chopping.  Taking the time to sharpen your ax will greatly enhance your performance and enable you to do even more.

Taking the time everyday to care for your health, to get yourself fired-up, to feed your mind, to strengthen your attitude, that time will enhance every minute of your day, all day long. But no, most people just want to get out there, like a race car driver who is too busy to fill their tank and fill their tires because they have to race, frankly it’s just foolish, but that is what people do.

So when you find yourself saying, "I am so crazy busy," think again - think, "I need to better strategize, set priorities, and take some time and realize what is truly important for me."

You’re not getting anywhere fast when you’re run down, sick, in pain, achy, unmotivated, going through the motions - you’re just lying and cheating yourself and everyone around you from the great person that is inside. Had you just taken the time to sharpen your ax...?

Everyday, honor the fundamentals, life is built on them.

6 Ways To Lose Weight During The Holidays

6 Ways To Lose Weight During The Holidays

How can I stay lean and even lose weight throughout the holiday season?

Here are some of the strategies I use which you can easily implement to your lifestyle to get through the holidays like a champ! :

1.) Never show up hungry.  I usually will eat a healthy meal before I leave for a party or event so that when I am there, I am not there to eat.  I am there for the true purpose of socializing and celebrating the event.

2.) I create my rules before getting out of my car. If I choose to drink I say to myself,  “ I will have 1 or 2 glasses of...”, “If I choose to eat,  I will only  eat...”, “I will stay away from...” The choices become very clear if you stick to your plan.

3.) I focus on eating nutrient dense foods, and stay away from calorie dense foods.  If you chose to eat at a party, then have a bite, wait 5 minutes, and have another bite. No one is forcing you to eat everything in front of you and gorging yourself.

4.) I put in extra effort at home to eat healthy knowing that I am adding extra calories at a party, so eat extra clean at home.

5.) I implement intermittent fasting into my week, enjoying the empty feeling and allowing my body time to process everything fully before adding more.

6.) Plan to workout the day of and the day after the party and drink plenty of water. For every unit of alcohol consumed, drink 2-3 glasses of water or seltzer.

We're these Tips helpful to you?  Leave a comment below and let us know what we can do to support you during the upcoming holiday season. 

Stay Awesome!

WHY HAVEN’T I “SOLD” MY WORKOUT ROUTINES?

WHY HAVEN’T I “SOLD” MY WORKOUT ROUTINES?

To date, you have not seen me selling workout videos like so many of my contemporaries.  The reason I have not done this is because I truly believe that what is an intense workout for one person, may be too easy or too intense for the next person.  I believe that a workout needs to be tailored to each person’s goals, skill level, ability, injuries, strengths and weaknesses.

One workout does not fit all. To truly have an effective workout, each person needs to do what is right for them and not just what everyone else is doing.  For example, a burpee might be a great option for a healthy person but for another it may be the worst possible move based on their circumstances. 

Train smart not just hard.  Everyone is obsessed over HIIT (high intensity interval training).  Very few are obsessed over being intelligent with their time and with their training.  Be intelligent.

What makes this weight loss program different from everything else you’ve tried?

What makes this weight loss program different from everything else you’ve tried?

I know a lot of programs promise you can “eat all the foods you love and still lose weight”. 

Sounds great, but how’s that working for you?

The truth is, any fool can come up with a plan to lose weight. You’ve been on enough diets to know that. You starve yourself and eat chemical cuisine that tastes like cardboard and the needle starts going down on the scale. You hate the diet, but you tell yourself you will do anything as long as you keep losing weight.

Until you can’t do it anymore.

That’s when you really feel like a failure. The diet was “working” but you were too weak-willed to keep it up. And you know what makes it even worse? The weight is coming back with a vengeance and now you weigh even more than before you started that torturous diet. You blame yourself and you feel ashamed.

What if the problem isn’t you?

Here’s something you should know-

Most diets are designed to fail.

It’s good for business. Diet companies make lots more money when you keep coming back over and over again. It’s good for them but very bad for you.

Losing and gaining weight is a very dangerous thing to do to your body.

Every time you starve yourself to lose weight, you lose muscle. What you gain back is fat. The more you replace muscle with fat, the harder it becomes for your body to lose any weight at all. It also makes it far more likely you will suffer a major health crisis.

With so much conflicting information on the Internet and TV, it’s easy to believe that nobody really knows the answer to permanent weight loss.

That’s simply not true.

There is plenty of scientific evidence about how our bodies work and what we need to do to have clear glowing skin, lots of feel good energy, a mind that is focused and clear, a peaceful night’s sleep and of course, a naturally slender body.

It’s really not that complicated. Do you want to know the answer?
